As the January transfer window approaches, Manchester United has got a potentially big reinforcement in the form of striker Edinson Cavani.
Despite interest from outside, according to well-known writer and transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano, the Red Devils are certain to keep hold of the 34-year-old in the coming months.
“As things stand, there are no talks between Edinson Cavani and the Corinthians board,” he tweeted. Timo fantasizes about Cavani, but nothing has progressed. #MUFC Many European clubs are interested in Cavani, but Manchester United is yet to make a choice for the January transfer window.”
The Uruguay international’s current contract is slated to expire at the conclusion of the 2021/22 season, implying an impending departure, though new interim manager Ralf Rangnick may have other ideas.
Man United supporters will be ecstatic.
Despite the fact that Cavani has only played 274 minutes of first-team football this season owing to injuries, Romano’s latest revelation will delight many United fans.
Because their styles look to be a perfect combination, the South American hitman has the potential to be a key player under Rangnick’s coaching.
Cavani has built an excellent reputation as an elite-level pressing striker throughout his career, never allowing rival defenders to rest and frequently profiting from the havoc his work ethic creates.
With Rangnick’s revolutionary Gegenpressing approach, the two seasoned combatants’ potential for a fruitful connection is evident to everybody.
Cavani also had a great season for the Red Devils last season, scoring 17 goals and assisting six times in 39 games across all competitions, demonstrating his significance to the team.
As a result, the news that the £5.4m-rated star is poised to stay in the red half of Manchester until the summer will be enthusiastically greeted by everyone linked with United, and the manager, player, and supporters alike will be hoping for a successful conclusion to the season.
